Camden Retail Leakage and Surplus


Camden Retail Analysis

Retail leakage means that residents are spending more for products than local businesses capture. Retail sales leakage suggests that there is unmet demand in the trade area and that the community can support additional store space for that type of business. A retail surplus means that the community’s trade area is capturing the local market plus attracting non-local shoppers.
